This initiative aims to improve security, simplify UI Health employees' login experience, and ensure that access to various university and hospital systems is more efficient.

Starting Tuesday, October 3, 2023, UI Health employees will be able to update and manage their hospital password using the University NetID Center,

Please be aware, that by changing a Hospital password through the NetID Center, the system will automatically set the same password for both UI Health and University systems.

Once passwords have been unified, UI Health employees will be able to use the same login and password to log into hospital and university systems.

As a result of this update, the Hospital password website,, will be decommissioned on Tuesday, October 3, 2023.

By unifying UI Health and NetID passwords, it will:

  • Simplify the login process by reducing the number of credentials UI Health employees need to remember.
  • Improve the user experience by making it easier to access the university and hospital tools and resources you need.
  • Strengthen overall security by implementing streamlined password experiences and policies.
Unifying university and UI Health passwords will simplify the login process and eliminate the need to remember and maintain two separate passwords.
